    Adolf Hitler in Heaven?

    To be in eternal torment, having done nothing particularly wrong in my earthly life, while the person who tormented and murdered me and millions more is in eternal paradise...something about that doesn't quite add up to me. Hitler was raised Catholic, though he was quite deeply irreligious in...

    Adolf Hitler in Heaven?

    If it's possible (possible, likely not probable) that Hitler accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior and went to Heaven...does it follow that the millions of Jewish Holocaust victims are in Hell because they likely died having not accepted Jesus?

    Ta-Nehisi Coates’s Testimony on Reparations

    What do you disagree with? History? I'm not hear to change minds. I just want to know how people here come to the conclusions they do. Personally, I think it's a straightforward affair. A group of people were unjustly targeted and their labor (from bodies that were owned, sold, beaten...

    Ta-Nehisi Coates’s Testimony on Reparations

    It did happen to them though. It's all in what you inherit. If your ancestors were constantly and unjustly held back, while everyone else was allowed to move forward, for centuries, and only quite recently were some (not all) of these hindrances removed, it doesn't automatically make you catch...

    Ta-Nehisi Coates’s Testimony on Reparations

    Perhaps I should clarify that the bill that Coates is testifying for, HR 40, is called Commission to Study Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act. It's simply putting a commission together to study the topic. It won't cost anyone anything. If you read the article referenced in the...

    Ta-Nehisi Coates’s Testimony on Reparations

    I just watched the testimony of Ta-Nehisi Coates (an author, journalist, and professor) that he did before Congress today (Juneteenth). I thought it was very interesting and made good points that I did not consider before. I wanted to know your opinions on it, and what would be the Biblical...

    6 blasts rock Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday

    It was the Muslim council in Sri Lanka that warned the government about this group three years ago. They were given names and details and yet the government sat on that information, unfortunately. I hope the terrorists are brought to justice, and that the families of the victims and the wounded...

    NZ Mosque Attacked

    I'm still not sure how my views are an acceptance of tyranny and totalitarianism. I expressed sadness over the ambush and murder of tens of unarmed civilians in a house of worship. (Not to mention the maiming/injury/trauma of many more). I said that the manifesto of the killer probably doesn't...

    NZ Mosque Attacked

    They were peacefully praying, in fellowship with fellow believers, in their mosque. As is their right. Whether you believe they worship the same God you do is another discussion. I...have no clue where this even came from. Nowhere did I mention tyranny or totalitarianism...not in words or in...

    NZ Mosque Attacked

    I'd like to think I'm a nice person. I think there's too much cruelty in this world. Also, this isn't war. The government and citizens of New Zealand are not at war with anybody. This was an unprovoked terrorist attack against a specific group of people having their time with God. These were...

    NZ Mosque Attacked

    I haven't seen Christianity demonized in any way concerning this attack, and I run in pretty liberal circles. I haven't read the manifesto nor do I want to. There is nothing a cold-blooded murderer can say that I would want to spend any time reading. I do know he made many references to many...

    NZ Mosque Attacked

    It is the manifesto of someone who killed 51 innocent people and injured many more as they minded their own business in their house of worship. PM Ardern probably wants to make sure that kind of hate doesn't spread any more than it already is. Unfortunately, giving a platform to every single...
